Nursing home neglect

The unimaginable has happened. Your loved one was abused by a care giver or neglected while in a nursing home facility’s care. Discovering abuse only compounds the distressing feelings around placing a loved one into a nursing home or care facility. But you’re not alone, an elder abuse attorney can help you get the justice your family member and loved one deserves, and hopefully stop it from happening again.


vehicle collision and injury

Over the years, we have learned there is no such thing as a generic vehicle or pedestrian collision as every type of vehicle crash or pedestrian injury may have unique rules of fault and mechanics of injury. If the collision involved a big-rig or bus, there are federal laws in addition to state laws which must be considered, so it is important to find a road and highway injury attorney familiar with each type of claim. Also, almost every vehicle accident involves one or more insurance companies: car insurance, health insurance and possibly third party liability insurance. Coverage issues and exclusions can be very important in road and highway litigation.

elder abuse & neglect

No matter what the causes are for the abuse, elder abuse is illegal. In 1987, the U.S. Congress passed the Nursing Home Reform Act (NHRA), which includes the Nursing Home Residents' Bill of Rights. It is the foundation of elder law, the legal practice area dedicated to protecting seniors. This law was intended to protect the quality of life for residents of nursing homes and improve the quality of care provided by their caregivers.


workers injury

Construction accident litigation is Usually quite complicated, is there is almost always several parties who may be responsible for the injury. As a safe, responsible construction worker, you understand the dangers of your work site. You're trained to follow safety protocols and use the right safety equipment at all times. Most people would not dispute the fact that construction workers have very dangerous jobs. In fact, statistics show one of the most dangerous jobs in America. Because of this construction employees are protected by state and federal workplace safety rules and regulations. Unfortunately, you or a family member can still end up suffering he serious injury while on the job, even though they did everything right.

financial elder abuse

Financial abuse is the theft or embezzlement of money or any other property from an elder. It can be as simple as taking money from a wallet and as complex as manipulating a victim into turning over
property to an abuser. This form of abuse can be devastating because an elder victim’s life savings can disappear in the blink of an eye, leaving them unable to provide for their needs and afraid of what an uncertain tomorrow will bring.


personal injury

When someone is seriously injured in any type of accident it is a tragedy, but when the injury or death could have been avoided because of another's negligence, it's unacceptable. You won't see us on T.V., but you will see us in court fighting against companies and individuals whose negligence or misconduct causes injury and even death to innocent victims. Although, large personal injury firms have their place and can accomplish good results, they may not be for everyone. We are a small trial litigation firm, that limits the number of cases at any one time, so that we may provide supportive and personalized service. if you want your case handled by the attorney in the 'firm name' and not an associate or legal assistant, feel free to give us a call.
